20 years of battle against acne. Not sure how bad accutane (3x) messed my skin up. Just can't control having a few pimples appearing. Tried it all. Change of diet. soaps, OTC topicals, prescription topicals, oral antibiotics. The acne is still here.

 

Started coal tar soap this week, after a breakout probably due to vitamins.

 

Anyone else using such soap?

 

Ingredients:

 

Sodium palmitate

Sodium cocoate

Aqua sodium chloride

Sodium hydroxide

TetrassodiumEDTA

Pinus palustris

o-Tolil biguanide

 

Safe to use on facial skin?

Have you looked at the "Allergen of the Year Awards?"  It may give you some clues about problem-ingredients.
